There are many things that DIY landscapers can do themselves.
Building small rock or timber retaining walls, laying paths, building structures and planting plants is all physically intensive work that can only be achieved through your own, or someone else’s, manual labour.
Having our machines available just to move some of these items around a larger or rural yard can be a big help.
What about the bigger jobs you dream about getting done? Perhaps you want a larger rock wall built, or you are planning on installing an in-ground swimming pool.
These jobs are best suited to the professional operator as we are fully trained to operate the heavy machinery required to achieve your goals. Not only that, but our training and on the job experience has fine-tuned us to be aware of and constantly assess our surroundings.
What to Look for in a Good Operator
Every project will have its own little hitches and idiosyncrasies. This is why it can be difficult to give an exact price for labour to be conducted for any project.
What you should be able to expect is that an operator can assess the job and advise what it is that needs to be done, how they are going to do it, and what machine or machines they are going to bring in to achieve this goal.
At Dee-Gees Bobcats Pty Ltd we offer a fair and honourable quote for work to be completed at fair and competitive hourly rates.
What Else Should You Ask?
What qualifications or licences do you possess?
It is very important to employ a reliable operator who carries all the appropriate qualifications to operate his machine.
A licence should be able to be identified along with the clarification as to suitable insurance and workplace health and safety procedures.
Do they clean up the site after they have finished the project?
Often, after a pool hole has been dug, for example, there can be a lot of debris that needs to be removed or distributed to leave a neat clean worksite so the next part of the project can run smoothly.
Are their machines in good repair?
It can be quite frustrating to experience delays in your project due to machinery failure. You don’t need to inspect mechanics’ certificates but you do need to seek assurances of machinery capability and quality.
